Whenever I try to import MPEG2 videos in to Adobe Premiere CS6, I get the following error:
"There was an error decompressing Audio or Video...."
Doe's anybody know what is the reason for that?
Do you know Hauppage TV recorders use MPEG2 in a non-compatible format, that there are a few sports cameras that use MPEG2 in a non-compatible variant? Obviously not, otherwise you would not have marked my post irrelevant. It only shows your lack of understanding of where MPEG2 come from.You disappoint me Jeff.
Your link is irrelevant, since there is MPEG2 capability, the OP can choose MPEG2 for his sequence, only it gives errors on file import. Maybe you ought to do a better job of proofreading posts. I only implied that if you use strange sources, like for instance Hauppage material, or DivX or XVid material in a MPEG2 wrapper, you can expect errors. If you use normal MPEG2 video cameras, it works.

Thanks for your reply.
It seems that there are many poeple out there who have the same problem.
I try to update my Adobe products and see what happens.
So, what is the solution then, Harm? I AM using Hauppauge to capture the output of old VHS tapes. Since I have an Hauppauge card.. I did not find any other solution than to use their WinTV software to grab the feed.
I tried to capture/rip directly from Premiere, but I didn't see this as a possibility. What so you suggest to :
1- Either be able to import that "non compliant" mpg2 file that I wish to edit in Premiere
2- Or to be able to capture the feed coming from my hauppauge card?
Try transcoding the Mpeg 2 files with Media Encoder to a Main Concept codec and then import them into Premiere. Often Times Premiere cannot handle the Meta Data used by 3rd party file writers and it blows up the decoding.
There's a third solution which has been overlooked and which is fairly well guaranteed to work here, dsada.
Pick up something like the ADVC110 from Grass Valley, which works over FireWire and captures to DV, something PP has no trouble with.
This article lists some possibilities, including Jim Simon's excellent advice: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/615047?tstart=60
Many analog to digital capture cards just do a very poor job, and offer limited options for that A-D process. I am also an advocate of the Canopus/Grass Valley A-D devices.
